    Yes, you got it. Psalm 86:8 is true. So thank you for mentioning there are other 'gods.' But for the Jews, including Jesus, there was only one 'true' God deserving and worthy of worship, however you take that (the only "true" God) to mean. I take it to mean that there is one God above all, with ultimate power. One -- not two, three, or thousands. Psalm 86 clinches the idea. Elohim, by the way, is in the plural, but to the Jews for the most part, as well as the Jewish nation, including Jesus, it meant God in the superlative, the God OF Gods -- higher than all others, both gods and humans. The word 'elohim' is the superlative in the multiple in a particular sense of El. It does not mean multiple gods within one context. But that is obviously not for everybody to grasp.

    You don't believe the Jews went that far back, do you? or do you?

    I guess you didn't see that post, although you say the Jews emerged from the Canaanites. Do you believe the Jews went back as far as the Canaanites?
